Whitby is an attractive and historic seaside town on the northeast coast of England, with a skyline dominated by its ruined abbey. Ever since the synod of Whitby in 664 AD, the town has maintained a long history of activities which have proved innovative and catalytic, particularly through its strong association with the Captain Cook’s voyages of discovery. In literature, Whitby is perhaps best known as the location where, in Bram Stoker’s famous novel, Count Dracula landed in Britain in the guise of a huge black dog. The town is located on the spectacular and scenic Cleveland Heritage Coast, and the venue is within walking distance of the entrance to the North York Moors National Park.
